It fails to enter hibernate mode It fails to Shutdown It will not boot, or It crashes. These are almost never a symptom of a software fault. There are a number of possible solutions for these issues: 1.Update the drivers for the new hardwareSometimes the drivers are faulty and can create the issues. We always advise this as it can resolve any possible software issues. 2.Move the card to a different slot in your PCThe card will be installed into a particular PCI slot in your PC. Just move it to a different slot and see if the problems are resolved. No other changes are needed (ie drivers do not need to be reinstalled).

Sometimes just replacing with a card by a different manufacturer can solve the issue. Also you can try moving the other card to a different slot as 2) above. 4.Disable On board Devicessome computer owners/technicians resolve issues by disabling the on board sound card in their PC.

Most likely PCs from the same shop will use the same components and have the same issue. 7.Try a different cardExchange the card for a different model/revision or for a totally different card by a different manufacturer. As you see many of these options require technical expertise so please be careful. Notably when opening your PC be sure to earth yourself to prevent static damage to boards.
